Mexico creating national data center of police officers

(Mexico City)  The National Information Center (CNI), a part of the National Public Security System, is collecting DNA and voice samples from Mexico’s 620,000 police officers.  The head of the center explained that fingerprints, photos, DNA and other biometric data will be collected from both public and private security officers.  He said that by having the information it will make it easier to verify legitimacy of officers.  The technology is coming from the
US-supported Merida Initiative.  (Note: this will also make it easier to prosecute corrupt cops that commit crimes, such as serving as hit men for a cartel and that leave forensic evidence behind.)

One Response to “Mexican leader slams U.S. coordination in drug war”

  1. Marilyn Says:

    Regarding “Mexican leader slams U.S. coordination in drug war”, I think I want to puke. I am sure Calderon is right when he says there is competition in the ranks of the American agencies – however, let them without sin cast the first stone.

    I am so damned sick of hearing Calderon bitch about the arms and how we are doing nothing to stop them from going to Mexico. Anybody with any sense at all knows the majority of the armament is NOT coming from this country.

    If Calderon wants help, then he needs to allow the US to come in there and help clean up the job – AND HE NEEDS TO ALLOW US AGENTS TO BE ARMED!! – and the U.S. NEEDS TO STOP THROWING A PITTANCE INTO THIS WAR ON OUR BORDER AND COMMIT TO DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT. THEY CAN START BY BRING THE TROOPS HOME FROM THAT LOSER COUNTRY AFGHANISTAN!!
